History of Black and Latinx Student Achievement Awards

In 1988 the inaugural program of Rockland Community College’s Achievement Awards Ceremony was  birthed to recognize and reinforce the academic and personal accomplishments of Rockland County students from the Black/African Diaspora.  The Hispanic Heritage Awards followed in 2014 to commemorate the artistic, leadership, and cultural contributions of members in the Latin community, while honoring the academic achievement and overall excellence of Rockland County students of Hispanic descent.

This year we are excited to have a joint collaboration for the Black/African and Hispanic/Latinx Diaspora honoring both cultures.

The purpose and focus of the awards is to continue to promote, encourage, motivate and advocate excellence while empowering students to show up as the best version of themselves in order to reach their desired level of success.

Keynote Speaker: Milton Santiago, Ed.D., LMSW, BA

Dr. Milton Santiago currently serves as the Interim President at Bronx Community College, part of the City University of New York system (CUNY). He has extensive experience in higher education administration and issues of social justice. Dr. Santiago began his career as a social worker in East Harlem, where he worked with youth as well as families dealing with mental health issues. He started his professional higher education career as a Counselor with the Educational Opportunity Fund (EOF) program at Montclair University in Upper Montclair, NJ. He then became an Assistant Dean of Students and Assistant Director of the Higher Education Opportunity Program (HEOP) at Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute in Troy, NY. Dr. Santiago continued his career in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, where he held the positions of Assistant Dean of Students at Marquette University, Executive Assistant to the Assistant Vice Chancellor for Student Affairs at the University of Wisconsin at Milwaukee, and Executive Director of an Alternative High School for at-risk students in Milwaukee. While in Milwaukee, he was an Adjunct Lecturer at Milwaukee Area Technical College (MATC), where he taught a course on the History of American Minorities.

Dr. Santiago held the positions of Vice President of Administration and Finance at Bunker Hill Community College in Boston, MA, The College of Staten Island, and Westfield State University in MA. Dr. Santiago spent a great portion of his career working at Lehman College, the CUNY senior college in the Bronx, where he held several positions and founded the Office of Governmental Relations and External Affairs. He was instrumental in connecting the institution to the wider Bronx community, including school districts, health, community, and arts organizations.

Dr. Santiago was a successful advocate for higher education with government officials, obtaining over $100 million for capital construction and improvements at Lehman College during his tenure. He later became President of the Bronx Information Network (BIN), a consortium founded to provide initial internet connectivity to Bronx agencies. BIN was funded by a $3 million grant from NYNEX.

While at Lehman College, he served with several national higher education associations such as EDUCAUSE, the Hispanic Association of Colleges and Universities (HACU), the National Association of Student Personnel Association (NASPA), the National Association of College and Universities Business Officers (NACUBO), as well as the American Council of Education (ACE).

Dr. Santiago is passionate about issues of social and economic justice. This was reflected in his service as a member of the Bronx Initiative Corporation (BIC), the Bronx Chamber of Commerce, and Chair of the Board of the Bronx Council for Economic Development (BCED). Under his leadership, the BCED established the Fordham Road Business Improvement District (BID).

Dr. Santiago is a proud graduate of the Educational Opportunity Program at Binghamton University, where he pursued a double major in Latin American Studies and Sociology. He then received a scholarship from the National Institute of Mental Health to attend New York University, where he obtained a master’s degree in social work. He obtained his doctorate in Higher Education Administration Leadership at the University of Massachusetts at Boston.

In 1993, the year of the 25th Anniversary of the Educational Opportunity Program, he was selected as one of the twenty-five Outstanding EOP Alumni for the first Quarter Century of EOP. He is also very proud of having met three US Presidents.
